Close to home Mowing by Cris Marlow

Sat outside with sketch book while my hubby mowed the back forty.
What do you do with an acre of land? Mow it. We have to get to it before it gets waist high and the Mower cant get thru it.  So he has to go thru soggy grass so he does it in stages. Annie sat in the inner yard to watch with her ball. I didn't put in the gate. Just wanted a memory of what I saw. Its not in proportion but it gets the point across for my journal.

  2. Thanks Lynn. The stories are for me to remember a moment in time. A photo is nice but a sketch and story makes the memory last.
